London - (Cuckold Mess): Labour insiders said today the Blair matrimony mirage was heavily propped up by Cherie's surreptitious shagging.
"But old Tone had her over a barrel about that first marriage to Dubya!" National Executive Committee mixologist Bernie Barfly commented.
"Why do you think they call her Cherry Bush? Nostaligia for the Japanese cult of the flowering Prunus?"
Other Labour reactions to Blair's memoir published today allege that little Leo Blair's paternity is one of the biggest jokes of the drowning Street years.
Apparently a Harley Street vasectomy specialist told an anonymous London black cab taxi driver the other day that he'd performed the snip on Blair some time back in 1992.
Conspiracy nuts immediately seized on the story saying such technical information would make a vas deferens to understanding the whole New Labour concept.
Meanwhile persistent rumors that Cherie also shagged Bill Clinton, Gerry Adams, Gallagher brothers Noel and Liam and 'half the London 2012 Olympic bid team' remain unsubstantiated.
Carole Caplin has a nasty rash.
